    ANONY MOUS - any mention of how 'happified' we should be because god's kingdom has already been reigning 97 years, just 900+ years to go? I think that was mentioned by a bethel speaker on Friday......

    My eyes were rolling when GB Losch was trying to explain Daniel and Revelation. He applied a verse in Rev. 6 about the Satanic future Antichrist to Jesus instead?! His biblical 'proof' for the 1914 doctrine was that WW I happened?! A verse in Acts about a resurrection after the millennium was misapplied to one before the millennium. He said the WT says or the outline says (from WT HQ?) more than he said the Bible says. He gave two e.g. of testimonies of changed lives by becoming JWs, but they were from people in the 1960s and 1970s (one about African and the other about U.S. Vietnam era guy). Has no one converted more recently? If this is the guy hearing from God, JWs are in big trouble. I have never been a JW, but this is one of the saddest, most boring religious meetings I have ever been in (with high cringe factor on most Bible verses used out of context with sheer WT eisegesis vs disciplined exegesis). The people in the crowd were yawning and the speaker only seemed half there. The way people clapped on cue was also unnerving (not to mention that only one person really said hi out of 9000 when I was one of the few in the building that did not seem to be JW; jeans/running shoes/no name tag).

    the diversity laws (allowing for homosexuality - but also religious freedom, racial discrimination etc.) caused a lot of the problems in our world

    Is that a politically neutral statement?

    eisegesis - Definition [ahy-si-jee-sis] (n .) Interpretation, esp. of Scripture, that expresses the interpreter's own ideas, bias, or the like, rather than the meaning of the text

    exegesis - Definition [ek-si-jee-sis] (n .) Critical explanation or interpretation of a text or portion of a text, esp. of the Bible NC

    Just got in and found an invitation to the convention on the hall mat. I had to laugh when it says the Sunday talk "Let God's Kingdom Come!", will show how this planet will soon be transformed into a paradise and "how you and your family can qualify to live there".

    Yeah sure, it's the same promise they made to the families living back in the 1960s (when I was a teenage dub) - and the same as the promise made at least 2 generations before that. Come and give your life to the WTS and you will be rewarded with a lifetime in paradise. Everyone better rush to hear that talk before it's too late!!! ............................

    One thing that struck me as rather odd, the picture on the front of the invitation shows the mother and her daughter skipping along hand in hand (in paradise) both wearing.....TROUSERS instead of 1950s durndle skirts (gasp).

    And what happened to the obligatory baskets laden with fruit and the tiger/ lion/ giant panda (or any other extremely dangerous wild animal of your choosing) patiently waiting to be petted by the little children??? They seem to have forgotten to include them

  • moshe

    Baskets of fruit in the new order. hmm- JWs will still want their Ipads, Ipods and smart phones--

  • designs

    Ipads- you can run them on Millennium Batteries...
